Authorities search business suspected of pot distribution

Site of search

Drug Enforcement Agency officers issued a federal search warrant to a local business suspected of marijuana distribution near Sahara Avenue and Rainbow Boulevard around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Metro Police narcotics officer Lt. Laz Chavez said the warrant was issued for Alternative Solutions, 6985 W. Sahara Ave., No. 110.

Under Nevada law (NRS 453A), people who need marijuana for medicinal purposes are allowed to grow their own plants and to possess up to an ounce of marijuana. The law, however, allows no legal way to buy the seeds or purchase marijuana for those who can’t grow it themselves. Thus, Nevada does not allow dispensaries.

DEA spokeswoman Sarah Pullen said no arrests had been made as of 8 p.m. Pullen said she was unable to provide any additional details about the search.
